This has Adam Scott, who I really dig. On top of that, my horror gal pal, Kristi, asked me about this one, so figured that I would oblige. Oh, this has David Koechner (Anchorman), Toni Collette (The Sixth Sense), and Conchata Ferrell (Two and a Half Men) as well.
I haven’t seen anything quite like this. It had a Home Alone vibe early before every got dark. It never got so dark or so grim that it was true horror, but it was that fantasy horror stuff that some people really get into. This was a lot of fun. I think this may end up being a December staple for me. It’s always good to have some fun fallback Christmas movies, and this strikes me as one.
There’s a lot of funny things that happen. Visually, it’s not quite Tim Burton, but it is very, very good. You can get lost in it at times and visually is where this one truly shines I believe. I liked this more than I anticipated. I can see why some people wouldn’t like this, but some people are self loathing ass hats who take themselves too seriously as well. It happens.
Rating – 5.8 This has potential to move up to the 6’s I think over time once I get the lines more memorized.
